If you own a Redmi brand of smartphone from Xiaomi, you are in for a little surprise during the lockdown. According to sources, most Xiaomi top level, middle level, and budget smartphones will receive MIUI 12 update within the next week.

The new next-generation custom ROM MIUI 12 for Xiaomi smartphones was in works since January 2020 and has been undergoing trials since March. Since January, news about MIUI 12 has been popping over websites but nobody could confirm the launch date. Even though Xiaomi is yet to announce the commencement of beta test or any release date, a list of the Xiaomi models that will possibly be among the first set of models to get MIUI 12 has appeared online.

Features of MIUI 12 update

  • New navigation bar and gestures
  • New and improved Camera UI
  • Enhanced dark mode
  • New icons
  • All new notification management system
  • Comprehensive system-level service
  • Optimized Advertising Services

Xiaomi is expected to release MIUI 12 updates for the majority of its brands but the smartphone models listed above will be the first to get the update once it is rolled out. That explains why some models such as the first-gen Xiaomi Mix is conspicuously missing from the list. Remember, those Xiaomi smartphones who don’t get an MIUI 12 update now will get updated later on.
